Masonry Design | Material Model

Did you know that To calculate masonry structures, a nonlinear material model has been implemented in RFEM. It is based on the approach of Lourenco, a composite yield surface according to Rankine and Hill. This model allows you to describe and model the structural behavior of masonry and the different failure mechanisms.

The limit parameters were selected in such a way that the design curves used correspond to a normative design curve.
